Hi, my name is Melissa. I will be 27 this up coming month.
3 years ago I misscarried at 9weeks, I delivered my first born child two years ago. He was born at 31 weeks 7months pregnant he was two months early. I had developed Severe preeclampsia. Along with high blood pressure during my pregnancy. He was 2.9 pounds and 15 1/2 inches long the last 4 weeks in utero he did not grow any as the preeclampsia was attacking me and not nursing him, he spent 45 days in the hospital before coming home. Today's he is a healthy 2 year old. After my complicated pregnancy The specialist decide to test me for antiphospholipid syndrome. Test came back positive. I did not have any symptoms leading up to this diagnosis before the complicated pregnancy and maybe the miscarriage. However no body symptoms.
As of lately I have been feeling tired all the time, leg cramps in both legs and migraine like headaches. I have had a MRI on my brain sto make sure that the APS has not affected anything, everything came back normal. I am not on any prescription, but being followed by rheumatology. She is not concerned that any of my symptoms are related to APS. Id like to believe her however why am I feeling these symptoms. I am making an appointment with my healthcare provider and again with my rheumatologist to evaluate things more thoroughly. I want to feel good and in a since normal again. Am I alone in all this? I am trying to understand APS syndrome and its life style. It's been very confusing so far. Sorry for the long post, just wanted to explain myself clear.
